First is NGC 2371, a planetary nebula about 4400 light years from Earth. To me it looks a bit like a candy in a wrapper (easier to see in the monochrome image).
NGC 2371 - 14 minutes L, 4 minutes each R,G,B
NGC 2371 - L channel only
Second IC 418. Sometimes called the spirograph nebula due to it's internal structure (though that's not evident in this image). It's located about 2000 light years from Earth.
IC 418 - 4 minutes each L,R,G and B.
